Welcome to the Visual Art Department!
 
Art is all around us and is an integral part of our lives. Powerful visual images surround us, communicating to us and challenging viewers with personal artistic visions.   It is impossible to conceive of a world without art.  There will always be a need for art education, the processes may change, but traditional art forms will always be part of society. 
 
Students want to learn art.  In the art program students will learn to be creative, be in touch with all of their senses, develop hand to eye coordination and learn to problem solve. Art helps students understand what is really inside them, and gives them an opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings in a variety of media.
 
At SDSS our hope is to foster in our students a love of creativity and the ability to think outside the box! All students have what it takes to be creative;   Art gives them self-esteem and confidence which can be applied to other disciplines.  It exercises the left side of the brain where problem- solving and spatial relationships take precedence.  Art making skills are closely related to mathematical thinking.  A lot of studio time is spent in creative problem solving.   It enables students the ability to face the myriad of new challenges that the future brings.  ART is preparation for the future! Art improves one’s quality of living! Art brightens the world! Art is important!
